If we want to explain in more detail; It should be noted that mechanical-open pistachios are open in various mechanical ways.

This cold water will crack the shell of pistachios. Then they put the product on the dryer.
The temperature of the device is preset to open the mouth of the pistachio enough.

In addition, some types of pistachios, such as Fandoghi and Kalleghouchi, need to be hammered or hit before the cold pool.
In fact, the cold water alone is not enough to make the round-shaped pistachios open.

Call us nowAflatoxin Free MO Pistachios

One of the questions is whether MO pistachios are suitable for export/import to EU countries that are sensitive to aflatoxin fungi?
To answer this question, we need to have a brief explanation about aflatoxin.

The aflatoxin usually develops and grows when pistachios are harvested and peeled late after harvest.
In other words, the fungus of aflatoxin penetrates the pistachio kernel through its soft and fresh skin.
But this is not the case with Close-Mouth pistachios. In other words, aflatoxin is not able to pass through the hard skin (hard shell) of pistachios.

For this reason, Close-Mouth pistachios are completely permissible regarding aflatoxin level.
But the point to consider is that in order to produce Aflatoxin-free MO pistachios, it is necessary to separate the open-mouth and even slightly-open pistachios from inside the Close-Mouth ones.
Pistachios, on the other hand, should be open in a perfectly hygienic environment.
